Classes resume week after explosion

Classes at FAMU film school and the Social Sciences Faculty of Charles University resumed on Monday a week after a massive explosion rocked an adjacent building in Prague’s Divadlení Street. A suspected gas explosion saw one floor collapse at the site, and glass and debris thrown into the street. Windows in all of the surrounding buildings were also shattered by the shockwave that left more than 40 people injured – one of them seriously. Police, fire fighters and rescue workers had to block off the area as a result and the building had to be reinforced by a construction and engineering crew to prevent it from collapse.
